Jack Wilshere is hoping to “have a conversation with someone” at Arsenal “over the next couple of days after Mikel Arteta said the door was always open for him to train with the team.

Jack Wilshere is still without a club after being released by Bournemouth at the end of last season.

He had been ready to sign for Como in Italy but post-Brexit Visa issues meant that he couldn’t be registered.

Arteta was asked about the situation in his pre-Norwich press conference.

He said, when asked about Wilshere training with Arsenal again “[Wilshere is] Someone that I know, that I shared dressing rooms with and is so loved by everyone here. Our doors are always open.”

Wilshere was then, of course, asked about Arteta’s comments about returning to Arsenal.

“I really enjoyed playing with him, sharing a dressing room with him. To hear him come out and say the door is always open is nice,” Wilshere told Sky Sports News.

“I think that it can only help me. As you said, being a round good players, training with world-class players and, as well, just being in a team environment is something that I am interested in.

“I am sure that I will have a conversation with someone at the club over the next couple of days.”

Back in November 2020, Wilshere admitted that returning to Arsenal was his dream.

“You never know. Listen, I’m an Arsenal man,” Wilshere said. “Look, there’s nothing, I’ve not spoken to anyone or anything, but that would be the dream.

“I’m not stupid to know that there’s probably no chance of it happening but I’m an Arsenal man, I love the club, I want to see the club do well.”
